    So I wasn't expecting to like it, but it's worse than I thought. It's almost flush with the back of the device, exactly like the camera. There is no way to "feel" for it. Almost indistinguishable from the camera horrible job Samsung.

    Watching Pocketnow reviews they even showed Samsung videos showing how you have to use two hands to use the fingerprint reader. Curious to know how fast the iris scanner works.

    The fingerprint reader wasn't as bad to me when I held it in hand. Plus, once you throw a case on it with the cutout for camera/flash/fps, you'll know exactly where to place your finger. It only took me a few minutes in the store to get used to the location. A pocket now review shouldn't replace a personal experience

    If it's anything like the Note 7's Iris scanner, it should work pretty quickly.

    A case won't change the proximity of the camera and fingerprint reader but a case should help find it more easily. There's no question that Samsung put it way too high and in an awkward place

    I think we can all pretty much agree that the location of the fingerprint sensor is probably going to be the number one complaint.

    It's honestly not as bad as people say it is, I will see thought when I use it more when I get it. I read however when u get a case its much easier to find it because the case raises around that area

    Folks act like they'll never get used to the placement. Do you still look down to see where the gas and brake pedals are?

    Something new never goes over lightly lol.

    I'm sure camera smudges will be a nuisance but people will adjust, well those who actually want the device.

    I use note 4 and one hand utilization is not bad, so the sensor won't really bother me.

    I messed around with an s8+ again today...it's definitely not as bad as the first time I tried but regardless it's poor placement.

    I'm a loyal Samsung and Android user for quite some time but I don't like adopting the attitude "well we'll get used to it."

    As a former Note 7 owner, I can assure you that the fingerprint reader isn't necessary when you have the iris scanner.

    The finger print sensor is the ONLY complaint. -_-

    Do you need to wake the phone for the fingerprint sensor to work? Or can it wake and unlock the phone directly from sleep?

    That's what I'm saying. Just like how I got used to the stock Android nav bar after coming from Samsung nav bar, I'll get used to the fingerprint scanner location easily.

    Anyway, I'm still going to use iris scanner / facial recognition. I've seen reviews where they tried to fool the facial scanner with a picture and it wouldn't budge, so there's a particular way to fool it. I'm not worried because if I lose my phone, I really doubt someone is waiting with a picture of me.

    Would you be concerned about a car that put the gas pedal on the steering wheel? I mean, in some ways, that's where it should be. What about if the Toyota Camry decided to replace the gas pedal and brake with a right hand throttle and a finger brake? It actually might be sweet but changing things could cause issues.

    I'll get used to it I'm sure. Got used to the V10 placement back a year ago or whatever, but the problem is that if the phone had managed to launch an under the screen scanner, it would be a perfect phone.

    Good news is that you can switch that up however you like! I think the left is better for me coming from the horrible V20.

    What's going to suck is the Note 8 is right around the corner and will have the fingerprint sensor under the glass home button on the front. Everyone that buys the S8 will be regret their purchase once this comes out.

    After seeing this video I'm having second thoughts.

    I don't regret the S8. I'm already planning to Jump to the Note 8, I just need a much better camera than I have on the V20 until then.
